Upcoming anticipated Xbox 360 games in one video.
if Sony doesn't cut the price of the PS3.
But Sony's losing so much money (that they'll never recover BTW) on the PS3 so I don't think they can afford a price drop atm. We'll have to wait for a PS3-Slim before we see one IMO.
You said something Sensible! But you're right one with that one! Unless Sony counters with a price cut of there own, it seems that 360's are going to own this holiday season. For three reasons only: 1. PRICE, PRICE, PRICE! 2. The excitement of the new "X-BoX Experience 3. And the hype of Gears of War 2.
Ok.. first of all. Japan+Europe > North America Second, it`s: a) Gears 2 (not a system seller) b) Fable 2 (probably will buy same people as Mass Effect) c) Banjoo (might dissapoint true fans and bomb like Viva Pinata) Now, what`s left. PRICE. I remeber, GC costing 99$. id that helped Nintendo to break 25 mln. WW sales? NO. Price is worthless, if you can`t play games, that you anticipate. And come on, if someone wanted to play Gears, why would they wait for Gears 2 to buy x360, because of 50$??? Fable 2 has some potential so far. Don`t forget, that M$ is running of xbox fans, first xbox sold less then 25 mln. It will be interesting this season, but just remeber, the PRICE isn`t everything.
Sometime between LBP and XMAS.
Sony can not drop the PS3 price much lower to soon. In an earlier article it stated that if they lower the price to much it would undermine the stand alone Blu-ray market. They are a member of the Blu-ray association so they may have to play by some rules. But as far as the 360 owning this holiday season only time will tell. Sony will still be strong no doubt about that.
With the price of an xbox being $199.....some people have the funds where it can be a splurge by......and with Gears 2 around the corner I am pretty sure it will push some consoles. The problem is...how are you defining a system seller? Technically if one system was bought just for Gears 2.....is it not a system seller? Given that Fable came out before Mass Effect.....I am pretty sure that Fable 2 will gain more than just the Mass Effect crowd...given that it already has established its own following. I was unaware that Viva Pinata bomb.....I while in some ways it was not the "commercial success".........it held its own, and deciding to bring a sequel reflects that in this case...as well as more kids having tapped into the tv show. I agree that price is not everything.....but trying to say that the 360 is in the same place as the gamecube is so far off. The gamecube was just lacking games in general...at least the 360 has games that are already here, and games that are approaching. "And come on, if someone wanted to play Gears, why would they wait for Gears 2 to buy x360, because of 50$??? " Perhaps in doing so they can use that extra $50 to help in buying Gears 1 and Gears 2?... Anyhow...I am not saying that the 360 will own or not......I just do not think your argument presents the best reasoning on why the 360 wouldn't own.
You're opinion might matter if we didn't ALL know your a 360 hater! Contrary to your beliefs...gears will be a system and the first one proved just that. Now you claim it won't because everyone who liked it already bought Gears 1? To that I call BALONEY!!!! That's like saying Halo 2 didn't push systems because Halo was already out. AND NOW that the 360 is price at a mass market price, it opens up the gates to everyone who couldn't afford it back then. And your comments about Fable and Banjo??? LMAO You're just hating on them. You know they've been getting GREAT feedback. And YES price isn't everything...But that's why the 360 has GREAT games coming and the BEST library of games already available. So don't hate,.... participate!
Xbox 360 "should" be hard to beat this Christmas with the price cut (which is the #1 issue with the mass of non-hardcore gaming consumers), Gears 2, and Left 4 Dead, plus XBLA Arcade just stomps all over PSN content and Netflix is also coming. I do think Sony will keep it close enough being a Bluray with all the blockbusters coming out and Dark Knight around 12/16. Wipeout HD will help with a lot of players familiar with the game who haven't gone next-gen yet. LBP will also help. I don't think Killzone or Resistance will sell new machines. Becasue there just aren't a whole lot of game changing exclusives left, it will be a matter of price vs. Bluray, and Gears/Left 4 Dead/Fable II vs. LBP/K2/R2/WHD for the most part. I think MS wins this Christmas, but not in dominating fashion. Wildcard: If Obama wins the election, people will be more optimistic about the future of the economy and job market and this may actually reduce the impact of Microsoft's price cut. If McCain wins, the nation will probably continue to pinch pennies.
I agree, Sony can't lower the price on the PS3 because of Blu-ray. All Sony can do is add more stuff to the PS3 packaging like increased harddrive size, game bundle, etc. So in a way, the value of the PS3 has decrease but then we all know inflation makes price goes in up.
I enjoyed your opinion on the election results affecting console sales this Christmas. I agreed with your overall notion that the 360 should have better sales than the PS3 this Christmas, but I don't believe that XBLA "stomps all over PSN". The PSN, while not having as many titles, seems to have more quality titles than XBLA. The original content on the PSN is amazing, and the PS1 games (while not as many as they should have) are also great and can be transferred to the PSP as well. As far as game-changing exclusives go; I would dare to say that LBP is the wildcard game this year. LBP clearly has the potential to be an amazing killer app for the PS3 that could sell some systems if it is marketed properly and garners good reviews. Of course, Sony's recent history leads me to imagine that I will see about 1 ad for it on TV in the next month and decent but unremarkable sales. Hopefully they will prove me wrong. This Christmas will be a dogfight in sales, though, especially if the PS3 does not get a price cut. This is a great time for PS3 and 360 owners alike as competition just keeps ramping up. My 2 things I am most excited for are Avatars on 360 and LBP for my PS3:)
@Monchichi - it's ironic that you call Crazzyman a PS3 fanboy and disregard his opinion, when you yourself are a 360 fanboy. On topic - I think Sony does need a price cut, but price is not all that matters, it's also the games. I already bought a 360 for GeOW1, and will be getting GeOW2 when it is released. So I don't see Gears 2 as a system seller, maybe a few people may get the 360 for that, but I can't see it being too much. I can't see Fable 2 being a system seller at all, it looks like it will suck (I like RPGs but not ones like oblivion). At the moment the main thing MS has got going for them is the price, but her in UK the 360 has been cheaper than the Wii for months and it still sells less than all the consoles (and PS2 as well most of the time). The only game that has the most potential to be a system seller WORLDWIDE imo is LBP, Xmas + A good marketing campaign for LBP = Nagging Kids = Lots of sales. Killzone 2 also I think has a bit of potential to convert some PC/360 gamers to PS3, as A LOT of PC gamers say it is the one console FPS they would like on PC.
^^^^ i have to disagree with Fable 2 being a system seller and agree Gears 2 wont be. Most the Gears fan have bought the 360 for Gears 1 so therefore most the Gears 2 fans already have a system. Now Fable was released on Xbox 1 so people who enjoyed Fable, well now have an incentive to buy the Xbox 360 for Fable 2 so they could enjoy that one as well..
I still don't understand why anyone cares who wins this holiday season. Just play the fuking games. Geez.
I hear what you're saying about PSN's unique games. I just think that niche games are niche for a reason; they only appeal to a small number of users. Take XBLA popular Braid, which is considered innovative. It uses tried and true platform gameplay that has mass appeal. For a minute I thought Donkey Kong had finally made it online. I think the best games on PSN are arcade remakes, Bionic Commando in particular. While High Stakes poker suffers because they tried to be too cute with, well, poker. Just deal the cards already man, and make them easy to read. I do think Wipeout HD will be so good that it will level the playing field upon release. @ those saying Gears 2 won't be a system seller Your logic is sound: Gears 1 owners already have Xboxes. But you're missing the point of the price cut. There are more PS2 gamers who have not gone nextgen than there are total nextgen gamers. Not everyone who likes Gears has a console. The only playtime they get is when their parents are in Walmart and they get on the demo box. Millions can't afford $300 for a console. And we all know that by the time you get extra controllers, cables, a few games, other accessories, your console can easily cost $6-700 before you ever hook it up. Now those kids' parents can get them a nextgen console to play Gears or Gears 2 for $199 + ~60. Yes, by the time they're done the price will be much higher than $199, but that's not the way our shopping brains work. An item with $50 more value selling for $205 will probably be outsold by a similar item with $50 lower value selling at $199. If LBP were available on a $199 console, I would say it would rule Christmas. But at current PS3 prices, it won't. Not many of those who have been limited by price will make that investment, for that game, in my opinion. Price is big. Those saying price isn't a big issue can already afford the console of their choice.
1) Whoever wins gets the new games developed for it first. Maybe nowadays it's, whoever wins gets to be the lead development platform, or gets better DLC, or better performance. The point being, a gamer does have an interest in how well their chosen platform sells. 2) Why do you watch football when you're not a player? Since the Gladiator days, competitive events have always been an enjoyable spectator sport :)
isn't that what Little Big Planet's supposed to do that for the PS3 as well MorganX? Braid is an XBLA game, it's not widely marketed, thus it is niche as well as any PSN title. Granted I'll give it the innovation vote, but the same donkey Kong levels can be made on LBP which will be a mass marketed game. Anyway, I find it interesting that all these publications (and some of you fanboys) are hollering about Xbox360 winning this Christmas season because of a price drop. You're all making BIG assumptions that Sony WON'T do a Christmas promotion. If Sony doesn't, I can understand a possible win over the holidays... but do you all naively think the situation THEN will be what it is NOW? This isn't Macro Econ 101 Ceteris Paribus modeling. This is real life... I think all predictions are premature at this moment. October and Nov. top 10 Christmas gift lists will most likely put one or the other console in the spotlight. Think about it, consumers DO NOT follow up on these news. They could careless. However, they will notice the holiday gift idea circulars going around and THAT, i think will be a good indicator of what retailers THINK will sell (and thus be heavily promoted, more likely sold, yada yada yada).
No matter what the price of the console is, if people want a PS3, they will wait for the PS3. For example my cousin, he can't afford a PS3 at the moment cos he's paying for driving lessons, but he is not buying a 360 because he WANTS a PS3.
5. fable 2- fable sux plain out, fable wouldn't even make the top 50 RPGs of all time. 4. GTA DLC- everyone one is over GTA already & the people who plays now mainly plays offline, & for Christ sakes its a DLC. 3. fallout DLC- its freaken DLC. 2. left for dead- i didnt learn about that game until this video, i feel sry for the poor saps thats gonna pick this up. 1. gears of war- meh a reasonable one but still it will have resistance pwnage all over its face.
The games have potential, but I have a hard time believing DLC is a system seller. I know Gears and L4D are purchases for me, but I already own a 360.
The pricedrop is pointless and I will tell you why. All the systems will be soldout in the winter anyway regardless of pricedrop. If you look at last holiday no system had a price drop and you could not find a psp, ps3, 360, or Wii atleast for a few weeks in the holiday. So Microsoft would have to make a lot more systems than Sony is making the PS3 to actually win this holiday. Also Sony knows what they are doing. As far as I know Sony never drops the price for any system pass the summer because they know during the holiday the sales will rise no matter what and it's already hard enough to keep up with the demand with whatever price. This is why they always drop the price in the spring and sometimes in the summer. Microsoft made a dumb move here.
Mikeslemonade you make a good point.
This vid reminded me of how much the -360- will be pwned this holiday.
They have stated there will NOT be a price cut so naturally 360 will win this holiday.
Id honestly get a PS3 if it wasn't 400 dollars and I already got a 360. Im pretty damn happy with my 360 though.
I have all 3 "next Gen" systems. The wii is only good for parties and the 360 is a coffee holder now... Sad to say. I did like GOW though. Although, the boss battles were pathetic (minus berzerker). . . Halo wasnt great. Bioshock half decent, Mass effect.. bleh... Basically there is nothing that has impressed me as much as the exclusives on PS3. I can play a game like Drakes over and over and be satisfied instead of playing something half good on the 360. Nothing has impressed me as much as the PS3. Drakes, Warhawk, Heavenly, Ratchet, MGSIV, RFOM, GT5, Motorstorm. This holiday we are getting RFOM2, LBP, Socom, Motorstorm 2, Home this holiday. This is a no brainer. If Microsoft were to come out with a larger storage medium I may keep it (even though I feel the PS3s hardware is also what makes the games amazing i.e. CELL). But I think I will be trading the 360 in this holiday season... Jake
Why these people felt that this required a video is beyond me.
yours even loaded haha
Honestly, this **** is taking too long to load for a list of 5 games. Someone please list them for me >.<
@mfwahwah Fable 2 Left 4 Dead Gears 2 GTA4 exclusive DLC Fallout exclusive DLC
Thanks! DLC is 2/5 of the "Top 5 Reasons..."? I really don't think so lol, but I could always be wrong. They should have added Live Experience and Price Cuts or something like that instead, imo.
mine loaded, and I can tell you the video lasted to long. I don't believe that the DLC will help move systems this holiday season. here are the reasons 1. the people that know about the DLC already bought the game. 2. it's clear that this price cut is to appeal to the casual gamer (wii gamer) Because the Arcade is the top choice for casuals, they won't want to buy the HDD necessary to download the DLC, thus making it irrelevant. I still think the rest of the list is ok
Of those that know me you know I'm a sony fan, but I must admit if I had to put my money on it I'd say the 360 will win. Here's why... Christmas is about gift giving. Gamers arn't going to get themselves the gift. Yes they will buy consoles and games for themselves but they do that all year and we're focusing on the economy boost at christmas as a result of everyone buying gifts for everyone. With that in mind, who buys the gifts? It's generally the non gamers. It's the mums and dads and aunties and uncles and grandparents etc. These people are uneducated in the area of gaming. Almost non of them would have even heard of bioshock or mgs4 let alone know how amazing they are and base their purchase on that. What they do know is price however. Now I'm not saying price if the be all and end all. Of course there are smart parents out there that know the 360 or ps3 or wii is the right choice for them because they did their research. But for the majority of arrogant parents, they will only be looking at the price. And who is the cheapest? Doesn't matter that the arcade is gimped (yes u can buy the hard drive too), the fact is parents don't know it's gimped and will still buy it because of the price. However, for the educated consumer that is passionate about HD entertainment, they'll probably be getting a ps3. And we all know hdtvs are going be the gift to get this christmas so I think ps3 will still be strong, but imo the 360 will come on top.
I don't see many reasons why it would. Fable 2 is the only game I'm buying on the xbox 360 this year. That, however, isn't a game for everyone. Gears 2, Banjo just don't interest me any. the 200 price point isn't applicable for most people cause it has no hdd and no hdmi on it. That means you don't have the option to even download content or videos. Xbox live is basically useless at that point.
1. gears and fable wont make Xbox 2 king of Xmass. Just F^%*&(g give up already.
Its really just an average RPG. As for Gays in war 1.5, that game is not a system seller. It already moved the systems back in November 2006. People buying this game already own a 360. Not the other way around. OWNED. But it dont matter, LBP is bigger than both of them combined. LBP is a new phenomenon that is bigger than anything seen so far. This WILL move systems. Lots of it too. How do I know? Well its simple. 15 million PS3 owners and I dont know ONE who wont buy this game. There you have it. What more proof do you need. This game appeals to young and old, casual and hardcore, boy and girl alike. Whats not to like about Sackboy/girl and uploading the LBP vids to YouTube? This is the shiat. The only title standing in its way of all consoles GOTY is MGS4 though LBP might be given the award just because it has wider appeal. I suspect MGS4 will then get PS3 GOTY. Sony also has a bunch of games lined up that will please a lot of fans AND sideline PS2 owners AND the casual crowd at the same time. SOCOM confrontation (my prediciton: 9 out of 10) Resistance 2 (9 out of 10) Motorstorm (9 out of 10) BIOSHOCK - people often ignore this one, but this is a system seller going to help the PS3 as much as it helped the 360 (9 out of 10) Eternal Sonata (8.5 out of 10) Naruto (8.5 out of 10) LittleBigPlanet (10 out of 10) HOME (9.5 out of 10) Fat princess (9 out of 10) WipeOut HD (8.5 out of 10) FLower (8 out of 10) Yes folks. The line up for this holiday is A fking MAZING. Where else but on PS3. ONLY on PS3. This holiday season is going to be SLAUGHTER. Dont even think or talk like as if both systems are pretty equal or something. They are not. Left 4 dead is overhyped and but just an average game. Not a system seller BY FAR. 7 out of 10. Fable 2 is overhyped but is just a 8 out of 10. Gays of war 1.5 should be around 8.5 out of 10. As you can see,the games are pretty average, and the price drop will merely SPIKE the arcade (worthless SKU) sales for about one month. Yes, I said one month. People seem to forgot that this is the 3rd pricedrop of the 360 this year and none have helped. This price drop is no exception. FACTS: Arcade is not in direct competition with the PS3. The xbox 360 elite is. And the elite is inferior in every aspect.
yes, let's all believe you. you've always been so correct in the past, and you're just the perfect neutral person to make predictions like these im not going to argue with all your incredibly exaggerated predictions, because i have no desire to read another long comment full of unbelievably fanboyish statements and randomly capitalized words i don't really feel like typing very much, so i'm just going to tell you that you can't say "OWNED" to your own comments that you feel are important. as a matter of fact i know of two people who are picking up a 360 for Gears 2 and two others for Fable 2-so they are system sellers
Fable 2 looks good
fable 2 is the only interest, no1s gona look back at gta4 the dlc was a waste of 50mil
you CANT saying something you know nothing about !!!. Mabye DLC make the gamer better by adding the things we missed in gta san andress like Jets. Flying cars ..etc
Yea militant, why not an alien invasion and space ships?
I only see fans of the original Fable and fans of that type of genre buying Fable 2. Other people are just hyping it cause it looks "good", but they know they're not gonna buy it.
I laughed so hard when they think dlc will matter maybe to the hardcore a little but the casual no. Im sorry ps3 has the way better line lbp motorstorm 2 resistance naruto ultimate ninja storm valkyrie chronicles wipeout HD socom playstation home you want more. People saying price drop ps3 is still outselling in europe even after the price drop maybe we Europeans are a little smarter then the average American we buy quality and not half a console like the arcade.
First of all, I am not American. But your little rant about Europeans being a "little smarter" then your average American made me laugh. If living in a much more facsist nation (Fill in any Euro Nation here) is smarter than living in a less facsist nation like the US, then your definition of "smarter" is laughable. If paying the gov't way more in taxes, is smarter, ROTFLOL!!! Maybe Americans like buying a gaming console, that guess what??? Has good and lots of games to play. That's why the PS3 doesn't sell well in NA, it just doesn't have many games, not to mention good games. Most multiplats look and play better on the 360. The PS3 definately doesn't have the best upcoming lineup. It's decent, but it ain't great. LBP, well this title looks decent, but it's nothing more than a 3D simple platformer. It will get old real quick, with only the creative people designing levels that 99% of PS3 owners will never play. Motorstorm 2, looking better then the 1st one thankfully. The first title was OK, definately a passible for a release game. But MS2 is looking more less the same with slightly better graphics and a few more options. Sort of like how Madden works every year. Resistance 2, looking good, but this title is swamped in a over saturated market of FPS, in which Resistance doesn't really do anything new or exciting. The online is looking pretty good though. And how you can even mention Naruto or Wipeout as "Great" games, WOW... That is really really reaching. They both will be very lucky if they score above an 80% on Metacritic, and that's even a reach. Valkyrie Chronicles.....Yawnnn!!! Only game on here that looks like a must have is Motorstorm 2. LBP for all you "Wii" type of gamers, people that like simple gameplay and cute characters. The rest, just doesn't interest.
"First of all, I am not American. But your little rant about Europeans being a "little smarter" then your average American made me laugh. If living in a much more facsist nation (Fill in any Euro Nation here) is smarter than living in a less facsist nation like the US, then your definition of "smarter" is laughable. If paying the gov't way more in taxes, is smarter, ROTFLOL!!!" Dude you just comfirmed that MajesticBeast was right about Eurpeans beaing smarten than the average american with your statement above. You have no clue of what your talking about and there are no facsist nations in Europe trust me (I live there and have graduated in geografics so I should know). Your blinded patriotism for your contry is whats laughable nothing else.
LMAO! Right??? At least I gotta give it to you that you guys have a sense of humor!!! And instead of hating on us, be greatful! If it wasn't for us, your wimpy butts would be talking German right now! LOL
All sales are desired, but, I don't know how to quantify the true value of European and Japanese sales against American Sales. If you're a failure in America but a success in Euro/Japan, you most likely fail. If you're a success in the US and a failure in Euro/Japan how much does that actually matter? I think if you rule in the US you can dominate an industry. If you only rule in Euro/Japan, you cannot, though you can be very successful. Just an opinion.
or whateva ur name is you do understand we "Americans" didnt join into WW2 untill about 4 year into it you do understand that right? The Brits are great ppl and if Germany did run them over you can bet they wouldnt be speaking German! They like myself would fight till the end! You do understand London was bombed for weeks on end and they didnt give up! i would ask you if you understand what started WW2 but im sure you would be wrong! all you need to understand is this In the world of different ppl's the most impprtant thing is respect! btw the answer to what started WW2: Treaty of Versailles in 1919
It is funny how I constantly hear, "oh, Europeans are smarter than Americans" and etc.... yet there are equally stupid things in going on in Europe. Ever heard of the EU regulations for banana curvature? I think the rule should be there are stupid people everywhere! "Stupid people don't know they are stupid" "Only two things are infinite, the Universe and Human Stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former" -Einstein
But nothing makes me laugh more than Europeans calling all Americans stuck up and arrogant. Then they turn around and make statements like Europeans are smarter than Americans and Europe is better than the US. Pot, meet Tea Kettle.
@3.2 Geografics huh? Wow must have taken a lot of schooling to be such an educated idiot.
So you mean that it were americans who had taken down Berlin back in '45? GET F***IN REAL and answer me, WHY is there a monument for RUSSIAN soldiers in the downtown of Berlin? Get yourself up from that PC and get read some history books, whose without lies how you save the world everyday from an imminent threat.
I'm pretty sure that I heard something about how American soldiers were close enough to take Berlin but they let Russia take Berlin for morale or something like that.. It coulda been another city with maybe Britain though I forget, it was on Discovery or History Channel.
Not saying the 360 line up is bad at all, but if the ps3 line up "ain't great" then the 360 line up is a pile of flamingo droppings. I question any man's integrety as a gamer if they can't at least give credit to lpb where credit is due. They don't have to like it, we all have an opinion, but at least give it credit. I've seen you previous posts and I KNOW if lbp was exclusive to the 360 you would be highly praising it.
this is what happens when xbots run their mouths nonstop back when the brick they worship was selling more than the Ps3. NOW THEY ARE STUCK pretending to be excited about lame titles like Banjo Kaffooie (nigga please) Viva Pinata (nigga please x 2) Gears 2 (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz) The rest of the titles are so not worthy of mention that almost no one knows who they are except die hard bots. This has to be the WORST holiday lineup in gaming history and I think sales numbers will prove it. At the end of the day most NORMAL people will do a product comparison and see the PS3 provides a much richer deeper exciting and TRUE next gen experience for what they pay.
If you love the PS3 then stick to its news and games. Why talk sh*t on the 360 news? Play your ps3 and stop looking at 360 news you tard.
u little [email protected], that joke of a company ripped me for $400 when I bought one just to please my kid who doesn't know any better. kinda like you. this man knows what hes talking about. now lets kill some pinko commie xbots.
Mr. Lazarus, why I must say you are one of the finest actors of our generation and Tropic Thunder is the citizen kane of this century. as for the kid, meh leave em be, he's young and ignorant.
you shoud grow up, if you are old enough to have kids then its about time you started acting like an adult "nigga please" hell you need help you racist fool of a man, same goes to the dude under you with the "[email protected]" comment
same garbage you ps3 kids were sayign before grandtheft auto came out how it was so superior on ps3 when it all turned outto be the same game. now noone gives a damn about it so why bother trashing games noones gonna care abotu in a few months?
so now Im racist??? Im a PS3 owner not a 12 yr old redneck on xboxlive. as far as you thinkin someone is racist for using the word "nigga" why don't you ask somebody before making yourself look stupid.
Nope.. pretty sure you're 12 years old.. Were your parents related.. you know, like before they were married? :x Anyways.. The 360's line-up is big.. get over yourself.
you are the one that looks like a fool, seriously i feel sorry for your kids, if they grow up to be half the jerk you are then i really take pitty on them, i would be embarased to have a father like you spamming the internet with fanboy BS like a child.
ACtually its 6 reasons in that video. The last one being a full HD capable gaming system for 199 bucks, at the 200 bucks mass buying level with all those multiplatform games running as good and in 99% of all multiplat games even better then its 400 bucks costing competitor... OUCH that must hurt Sony. At 50% of the price, you get the same gaming experience. Thats a pretty though thing to fight. The only thing Sony can do is lower their hardware price, although the LBP 80GB PS3 pack already does so coming at 399 Euro including a game and the dual shock 3 I bet people don't see it that way. The PS3 should come down to 299 Euro to stay in competition just a bit for this coming Christmas season! To the poster above me: And what does the PS3 have this Christmas? MGS4 (only for real MGS fans otherwise the story is hard to follow), Resistance 2 which looses in marketing from Gears 2 and appealness to the public. THe only game that can sell hardware is Little Big Planet. WHile the 360 has besides Gears 2, Fable 2 (another RPG where the PS3 has virtually NONE), Left 4 Dead (Valve games always are exciting), Viva Piniata 2 for the kids (with about 8.5 out of 10 average it got better rated then GT5P or Heavenly Sword), Banjo Kazooie, Fallout 3 DLC, GTAIV DLC And the total library of the 360 is having more games plus spread over more genres then the PS3 has
because exclusive content always sways my decision. the maker of this video is a retard.
Both systems have what I consider very comparable "Exclusive" content this holiday. But the single biggest reason, easily, that will push the 360 ahead of the PS3 this holiday season, barring Japan of course, is price. The PS3 can't match the 360 in this category, price, with a good selection of games and exclusives will easily push the PS3 back into 3rd place again in recent sales. Let's not mention the Wii either, cause you know that when my wife who never plays videogames wants a Wii, then it's time to retire from the hobby. I just don't get the appeal of the "Wii", wasn't that much fun, and it really dumbs down video gaming in general.
even with the price drop i still wounldn't buy it. im also guessing that the arcade ver will sell the most this holiday season so lets do the math. console : 200 (arcade) HD (if u want online downloads CASTLE CRASHERS) : 130 (20gb then upgrade to a larger size by opening it) xbox live : 50 a year (gota have online) wireless adap : 100 (given) hd cables : 10? (some sites) hm........... aint that the price of a ps3? WAIT A MIN im getting a stripped down arcade xbox360 for more then the price of a ps3? if i JUST got the arcade console for xmas id be one pissed guy. the way i see it its just not even worth it. even with the price cut its still the most expensive console on the market. u just have to be smart and do some reading.
That's the stupidest thing I've seen in awhile. Answer this. What is the price of admission for each console? Also, since you want to be anal. Why are the people without the internet, or broadband, or an hdtv paying $400 for a ps3? Aren't they getting cheated?
